24th of September - Mr. Long Legs (267th Song)
I made a song with only bass today, I got inspired by Dexter's intro theme to do it.
Thoughts: It was a long time since I played bass this much. It was very nice to feel those thick strings under my fingers again. I felt like grooving and I did I reckon.
When I want to groove normally I make slow songs where the groove is more intense and difficult. This time I made it quite good, I was very focus and even recording a lot of tracks with an instrument that I don't master sounds quite tight. The title of the song comes from the image that came to my mind when I was playing the main bass line, I imaging a guy with very long legs walking slowly, very arrogant but just thinking inwards, not letting the external events affect him. It's a weird image, but I really see this.
After recording everything I worked a lot on the sound, I don't know why (I guess I'm relaxed and in the mood) I just knew almost everything that I needed. I was working without hesitation, trying some things but around the effects and tools that I knew were gonna work. I realized that when I listen through the laptop speakers it's easier to hear what compression does to my tracks.
